According to Tepco, the “steam” was observed coming up from the same location of reactor3 around 8AM of 9/18/2013 again. It wasn’t seen by 10AM.

In the secretariat meeting for Fukushima decommissioning on 8/29/2013, Prof. Yamana from Kyoto University Research Reactor Institute stated Tepco needs to investigate what is actually discharged as the “steam” such Tritium. However, no analysis data has been published yet.

(cf, Kyoto Uni Prof. “Tritium might be discharged directly from the reactor3 to the atmosphere” [URL])
